IT HAS A LAXITIVE IN IT AND WAS KNOWN TO HELP YOU LOSE UP TO 6 LBS A WEEK,WAS RX FOR THE OVER WEIGHT PEOPLE(OB) ## This drug, however, is still available in Mexico, as well as several other countries, so unfortunately, those who self-medicate, for whatever reason they are doing so, can pick it up there very cheaply.

Customs agents are not trained to keep track of which drugs are or are not legal in the US, and if someone...

Taking contrave a second time around

I recently took contrave for a year and had wonderful success! I had all the horrible side effects in the beginning and wanted to quit. I talked to my Dr and he lowered my dose and the intolerable side effects went away! I originally lost 65lbs now after stopping it, I've gained back 30 lbs. After a while though I reached a plateau and it stopped working my appetite came back and I started to gain. I've been off contrave for two months and was wondering if I restarted taking it would it begin to work once more? I guess my question is how long do I have to be off of it for it to be out of my system so that I can start fresh again? ## Most people do report hitting a plateau point, after being on it for awhile, and it usually takes a few months for it to start working, again. I...

Side effects of Contrave

I'm on my third day. Today I have a severe headache. But my question is this, has anyone had bad diarrhea? I get cramps, then bam. But I was feeling better by night. Today is the worst.

Astymin for weight gain

Can astymin forte capsules make one grow fat/big? ## Atymin is a nutrition supplement made up of essential amino acids. Our bodies do need certain amounts of them, for proper health. However, the only way they should make someone gain weight is if they are deficient in them and that has caused them to suffer weight loss. And, even in such cases, it would not cause severe weight gain. Are there any questions or comments? ## When to eat astymin forte, after or before dinner? ## I have noticed rapid weight gain in just one month after taking astymin multivitamins. Could it be the cause? ## I just want to start using astymin now to gain weight, and I don't know how effective it is.

Just started Contrave

Wow, I took my first pill this morning and in an hour I had bad diarrhea. Was on my way to work and had to turn around and go home. An hour and half later and I'm still feeling stomach cramps. Am I going to have this problem every time I take the pill? Should I take the pill with food? I had eaten breakfast an hour earlier. Help, I don't know what to do. ## Yes!! and more!!

I can't use a product that leaves me unable to eat, drink or do anything but lay down for the entire day. ## Hello Cynthia, According to the NIH diarrhea is a ...

Can I take Lipozene while on blood thinners?

Can I take lipozene and eliquis at the same time? Does lipozene either thicken or thin blood? Or will it not interact negatively? ## Hello Maureen, From what I was able to find Lipozene is only a natural supplement containing the active ingredient glucomannan. The manufacturer claims, but has not been proven or accepted by the FDA, to aid in weight loss, balance blood sugars and relieve constipation. I was unable to find any scientific studies or documentation on interactions between Lipozene and other drugs. Assuming that you are already on Eliquis I can only strongly recommend that you discuss the safety of taking Lipozene. Only your primary care doctor will have access to your medical history and information which will allow them to make an informed decision on it's practicality ...
